    Hello to all. Prior to installing IE7, I used to occasionally delete the
    bloated "index.dat" file by booting into safe mode with command prompt,
    logging in as Admin, changing to the c:\ directory and executing: del
    index.dat /s

    Now when I do that, I get the message that the file cannot be found. I know
    it's there, what's up??

    Thanks in advance for any help and as always, best regards,
    Morey
